Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Hope you are well

We are developing a range of perfume sprays which contain alcohol denat,As you already know there is confusion within the muslims as to whether alcohol denat is halal or not,I have read your fatwa on alcohol use in perfume & was hoping you could supply a summarised version so i could use it on the back of our packaging,our brand is called Vieri Perfume .. you may have seen the product.. it has already been launched and we want to use a fatwa on the new packaging which we are developing,

Inshallah will make a further donation to your organisation.. pls can you contact me asap and let me know how much time it will take to complete this,for your information the fatwa should not be more than approximately 550 characters long including spaces.. should be straight to the point and easy to understandPlease contact for further informationthanksHamza

Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq

As Salaamu Alaikum

The alcohol used in perfumes or deodorants is normally a synthetic alcohol, which is not impure (Najis) according to the prevailing view of Imam Abu Hanifa and his followers. Therefore, the external use of this type of alcohol is not Haram. However, its oral intake is still impermissible except in the cases of necessary medication.

Wallahu Alam
